The Board of Directors of the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) is proud to announce that HSNEGA will be joining with Mellow Mushroom restaurant in Gainesville for Puptober Fest to be held Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 3-5 pm.
“We are so thankful to Mellow Mushroom for offering to host this fun, seasonal event for pets and their people,” says Julie Edwards, HSNEGA Executive Director. “Our team is grateful to be able to partner with local businesses to support the homeless, at-need animals in our community while highlighting our services and the adoptable animals in our care.”
The event will be held on the front lawn at Mellow Mushroom, located at 700 Green St NE, Gainesville, Georgia 30501. Event highlights include pizza slices and pints for sale, as well as souvenir t-shirts and pint glasses, with proceeds benefiting HSNEGA’s rescue and adoption efforts for at-need animals.
HSNEGA also will host a Costume Contest with five Howl-o-ween categories: Fan Favorite (favorite game-day swag), PAWesome Pair (best owner/dog duo), Scariest, Funniest, Most Creative. Pets/domestic animals of all shapes and sizes are welcome with their owners to participate in Puptober Fest; however, appropriate restraint should be provided for all animals. Owners will be responsible for pet waste.
“We are really excited to be partnering with the Humane Society and can’t wait to have the community come together for a really good cause and a great time.” says Lily Nicholson, Marketing Manager at Mellow Mushroom.
